The Jews Renew Vow of 'Never Again'

The worlds knee jerk support for Islamic extremists and condemnation of Israel is baffling and leaves one spitting and sputtering as to how to deal with a situation in which history, facts and reason seem to have no influence. I have no other weapon to bring to the table. But then again the same applies to the Jewish communities penchant for voting for Democrats. Perhaps I just need to click my heals together and repeat 'there is no place like home' three times.
Isn't it interesting that someone who fanatically supports a President whose appeal was a promise to fundamentally transform America also criticizes her opposition for taking down that same country?

Yes, satire. Isn't it revealing that liberalism cannot be recognizably exaggerated?
Limits on Presidential 'discretion' are subject to the same sort of creeping interpretation syndrome by which matters that are not black and white but some indefinable shade of gray, i.e. virtually all matters, can be manipulated to any shade of gray that may suit the interpreters purposes. Gray is, after all, all that is neither black nor white. Even though there is no definable point that can be identified as the transition between black and white, practicality usually admits to grays that are too white to be considered black or too black to be considered white. Alas, practicality is trumped by political ambition and in political matters no such distinctions can be agreed upon. Even a SCOTUS ruling can only settle the matter as to a specific situation and cannot be generalized. The sides can and will pursue their own best interests ad infinitum and the issue will never be settled. The only definitive but periodic resolution resides in the voting booth where the idea of too black to be white or too white to be black can be defined and enforced by those whose government this is. Our system of government depends on their doing so consistently well. It also allows them to do so poorly.

There you go again, Ann, presuming that words mean what they say rather than understanding that words, no matter what they actually say, are just malleable expressions that must be interpreted in the light of the spirit of the law, which spirit is Liberalism.
Pelosi, like too many Democrats today, is so convinced of the righteousness of her views that she believes anything a Democrat says must be true simply because a Democrat says it.
No one with at least the perception and reasoning ability of a two year old needed to see an actual email to know that Lois Lerner hated any who were not rabid, fanatical Democrats. Neither do they need them to know that not only did she clearly target conservative groups in her role in the IRS without a single pang of guilt but she did so with the typical arrogant self-righteousness of today's Democrats as to feel actual pride in it. All the emails do is force everyone to admit what we all already know to be true. The Democrats have gone from 'the appearance of impropriety' to 'you need proof of criminal activity to even warrant an investigation'. Of course, if you already had the proof, then the next step is prosecution, not investigation.
It all hinges on whether or not there is a 'John Dean' in the Democrat party. Unless and until someone close enough to know what happened breaks ranks, the Democrats in and out of the MSM will succeed in painting this as a Republican witch hunt in the minds of all who want that to be true regardless of what other evidence may surface. If they are to believe anyone that anything untoward occurred the latter musty hear it from one of their own. These are the same people who can believe Israel is at least as guilty as Hamas if not the outright aggressor.
Apparently the premise that it is honorable to die for Islam does not require that it be voluntary.

If Democrats could now solicit black votes by listing all of the ways in which past votes from blacks for Democrats has allowed Democrats to improve what they contend is the blacks poor lot in life, they would surely do so. Even Democrats accept the significance of results when they are positive. It is bewildering to me that Democrats can continue to successfully solicit black votes on the premise that they will do what they have promised to do in the past but which, as evidenced by the very repeated content of their message, admits they have failed at doling.
